The iPad (officially fifth-generation iPad) is a 9.7-inch tablet computer designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. After its announcement on March 21, 2017, conflicting naming conventions spawned a number of different names, including "seventh-generation iPad" or "iPad 2017". It retains the screen size of the iPad Air line of tablets, and is more powerful than iPad Air 2, even as its overall dimensions and weight are more similar to the original iPad Air.
Unlike the iPad Air 2, this generation of iPad does not have a fully laminated display and lacks an anti-reflective coating. Unlike the iPad Pro, it does not have a Smart Connector and only features a dual-speaker system.
The iPad received mixed reviews. It was significantly praised for performance, with reviewers asserting that the model is noticeably faster than older iPad models, and it also received positive reviews for its price and battery life. It was criticized, however, for lacking a laminated and anti-reflective screen, and lack of support for Apple Pencil and attachable keyboards through the Smart Connector. Its introductory price in the United States was the lowest ever for an iPad, with the media noting that the lower price might be an effort to encourage wider adoption of the tablet in the education sector, as well as for businesses needing inexpensive tablets for undemanding uses.
On March 27, 2018, Apple announced its successor, the sixth-generation iPad. This also marked the discontinuation of this iPad. Purchase a Ipad (5th Generation)The text above came from the IPad (5th generation) article on Wikipedia, licensed under the CC-BY-SA license.
